Ramps, Castles, Or??


Last week I found these mini finger skateboards at a dollar store.
Placed them out with blocks, ramps and tubes.
Watched and waited to see what would happen.

The first day most children went for what I thought was the obvious and built ramps to send the skateboards down.
Although one or two children built castles.  They also found little people figurines to add to their play.
Each day the play changed and the children would explore further with the materials to...
create a variety of scenes,


and tell stories.
This little boy even had the parrot voice while telling his whole story - it was great to observe.
But my favourite was to watch this little one build and destroy with great delight.

 He's giggling and checking to see who's watching.
